Deadline Approaching for Student of Integrity Scholarship Applications
Milwaukee, Wis. – The deadline to apply for the Better Business Bureau Serving Wisconsin Student of Integrity Scholarship Program is quickly approaching. Applications must be received in the BBB office by January 16, 2020 at 4:00 pm. BBB awards ten (10) scholarships to Wisconsin high school students who have demonstrated character, leadership, and ethical values. The scholarships will be awarded for post-high school education at any Wisconsin-based accredited college beginning in the fall of 2020, including community colleges/technical colleges. As the scholarship recipients pursue their careers, BBB Serving Wisconsin hopes to develop future business leaders who will promote ethics in the Wisconsin marketplace.
To be eligible for this award, the student must:
- Be a high school senior
- Be a Wisconsin state resident
- Have a 3.0 or show GPA improvement consistently over time
- Plan to attend a Wisconsin-based accredited Higher Education Institution (2 or 4 year)
To earn a scholarship, students must submit two (2) letters of recommendation from an advisor or community member. Each student is asked to write a short essay describing how they build character in themselves and in others, and how they will build character in the future. The essay is critical and must emphasize overcoming obstacles and demonstrating ethical leadership at a young age. Community involvement, volunteer activities, awards and honors, are all considered by a panel of judges.
In addition, these scholarships are intended to create long-term ties with future Wisconsin business leaders who will promote ethics in the marketplace as they pursue their careers. Scholarship winners will be spotlighted at the BBB’s annual Torch Award for Ethics luncheon which will take place on April 9th at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee.
